The Duke Center for REsearch to AdvanCe Healthcare Equity (REACH Equity) is seeking applications for a mentored research career development award for junior faculty. REACH Equity will address racial and ethnic disparities in health by developing and testing interventions that improve the quality of patient-centered care in the clinical encounter – a setting in which racial and ethnic disparities are well-documented. Applicants for the REACH Equity CDA must propose research related to this theme.
Up to six scholars will be awarded up to $75,000 for two years. Awardees are expected to use the award to protect at least 50% of TPE.
Applications are due February 1, 2018.
Funding will start July 2018.
Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to schedule a 5-10 minute phone call with the IDC Director (Laura Svetkey) to discuss alignment of their research question with the REACH Equity theme. To schedule a phone call, please send a brief description (3-5 sentences) of your potential project to Kimberly Dorman.
Potential applicants may direct other questions to Stephanie Molner.
